DVD review

The Hound Of The Baskervilles

Awful slapstick version of Conan Doyle's tale from 1978, with Peter Cook and Dudley Moore (as Holmes and Watson) recycling old sketches badly as they head up a cast of vintage British comic talent (Kenneth Williams, Irene Handl, Max Wall). It's basically 'Carry On Sherlock', and it does the memory of all concerned no favours.

DVD EXTRAS: Trailer, biographies, interview with director Paul Morrissey.

Rating: 1 / 10
